Just tried using the Modern (Windows 10) Icon set and seeing a few missing icons in both PowerArchiver Burner and PowerArchiver Encryption screens . They are all there in the Minimalistik icon set and the only difference I can see is the former is blue and the latter grey. In version 22.00.9
there were some security issues fixed in 7zip:
As it seems, that PowerArchiver and PACL use the 7zip libraries, could you please update them to the latest version?
I noticed that the version of ZPAQ used is older than the latest released 7.15 https://mattmahoney.net/dc/zpaq.html also there seems to be a newer fork that adds several features https://github.com/fcorbelli/zpaqfranz
It would be useful to implement this latest version (it also maintains the same syntax and behavior as the latest official release if used the -715 flag) and add when opening a zpaq file a choice of the version of the files to show (e.g. as dummy folders represented the various versions present). Since any previous changes are stored with this format, it is possible to extract a snapshot of a certain date/version.
If I open a password-protected zipper file (created with WinRAR but I think that’s irrelevant), open it with PowerArchiver and run “Remove Encryption” on the same file, then reopen it and add a password with “Encrypt Archive,” the resulting archive will be protected with the old ZipCrypto algorithm and not AES as indicated.
(this can be verified, for example, by trying to open the archive files with Windows Explorer, which does not support the AES algorithm)
PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
What font is this ?
This has nothing to do with PA, but I’m trying to find out the name and size of the font used on the attached image (the image used on the PA home page next to the “PowerArchiver Outlook Plug-In” link). I want to use it as my system font but haven’t had any luck matching it up. I’ve been told it’s MS Trebuchet, but when I try that font it doesn’t look like the one on the attached image.
Please…… Does anybody know the font name, font size and whether bold is used ?
Probably is that font but looks like ClearType font smoothing is on. Can turn this on in effect settings (windows xp), but makes text blury as hell… only time I’ve ever seen anyone use it is in screenshots to make there products look better!
I think MS are paid by opticians to include ClearType in Windows so that the opticians can sell more glasses.
Thanks a lot Stephen!
You saved my sanity. It was indeed the ClearType feature. I got exactly the same look by using the default of Tahoma, 8.
